What is Adaptive Cruise Control?
Adaptive Cruise Control is a feature of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that helps drivers stay safe on the road. It uses cameras and sensors to keep track of other vehicles and adjusts the speed of your car accordingly.
How does it work?
During calibration, one of our highly skilled technicians here at Pro-Adas will adjust the sensors and cameras to make sure they are properly aligned with the driver's position and the vehicle's environment. This includes adjusting the camera angles, mounting heights, as well as configuring settings such as object detection distance and speed thresholds. They'll also test the system to find any anomalies and make sure all components are working correctly. Finally, they'll provide a report to the driver indicating that their ADAS system is calibrated correctly and ready for use on the road.
Does it replace a normal cruise control system?
No, Adaptive Cruise Control does not replace a normal cruise control system. Rather, it works in tandem with the existing cruise control set-up to make driving more efficient and safe. While regular cruise control helps maintain a constant speed for long distances, ACC adjusts the car's speed based on its proximity to other vehicles on the road. It also monitors lane markings and uses sensors to detect any obstacles or obstructions in its path. By monitoring these factors at all times, ACC can help prevent collisions and provide a safer driving experience overall.
Are there any safety features associated with Adaptive Cruise Control?
Yes, there are several safety features associated with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) that make driving safer and more efficient. ACC uses advanced sensors and cameras to keep track of other vehicles on the road and adjust the speed of your car accordingly. This allows drivers to maintain a safe speed and distance from other vehicles, reducing the risk of collisions. However, it is important to note that ACC is not a substitute for safe driving practices and should always be used in conjunction with careful driving habits. Additionally, proper ADAS calibration is necessary for the system to function correctly and ensure maximum safety on the road.
Are there any risks or dangers associated with using an un-calibrated ADAS system?
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) uses cameras and sensors to monitor traffic, detect lane markings and automatically apply the brakes to prevent collisions. However, it's important to note that proper calibration is necessary for the system to function correctly and ensure maximum safety on the road. Un-calibrated systems may not accurately detect obstacles, adjust speed or provide lane-keeping assistance; leading to a higher risk of accidents. Additionally, drivers should always be mindful of their driving habits even when using ADAS safety features.
Can I do the calibration process myself or should I get professional help?
It is recommended that you have a professional do the calibration process, as it requires special tools and knowledge in order to accurately calibrate your vehicle's Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system. Calibrating the system incorrectly could lead to a greater risk of collisions and other dangers on the road, so it is important that it be done correctly. Professional technicians are trained and certified in properly calibrating these systems, so they are able to provide more accurate results than if you were to try calibrating it yourself. Additionally, some manufacturers may require that calibration be done by a qualified technician in order for the warranty of your car's ACC system to remain valid.
In addition to providing professional ADAS calibration services, we are also authorized distributors for Autel, a leading manufacturer of diagnostic equipment for the automotive industry. If you're interested in purchasing your own calibration equipment, we offer limited technical support for Autel products to help ensure that you're able to properly calibrate your vehicle's ACC system. We understand that proper calibration is not only essential for safety, but it can also help prolong the lifespan of your car's ADAS components and prevent costly repairs down the road. By choosing to work with us, you can trust that you're getting access to the latest technology and product expertise, so you can stay safe and confident on the road.
